wow guys and gals....I got a mess of cards from several sites today....friggin stack of em.....I can't thank you enough for the support and blessings from everyone here....they really do mean alot....
I am now at the bottom of the barrel as far as white cells go...they have officially killed them off and then I have to go thru some other item to happen...I'm on day 5 of chemo drugs and I'll be here about a month.....then it will be a wait and see if stem cells will take once I have a donor......my sister is here from dallas and they are trying to determine if she's a match...

thanks again for all the cards this morning......all I can say is the support and prayers from you all are tremendous......

if your not sure about sending a card...
address it to harry (steve) stephens
rm 1559.....

it's free and easy to do....
Steve

Don't sweat it, fortunately for you, bald seems to be "IN" right now. Forget the hat and wear the new look like you meant it. Keep on keepin' on.

ok...today was sorta funny.....at least I thought so....I have this team ..which I call the 3 amigos ...doc's Holister parker and poole..which also sounds like cheesie lawyers from the 3 stooges......holister, a nice young man is obviously limp wrtisted.....but seems to know his medicine........poole, a very serious young lady but a bit masculine in the way she stands .....well...they come in and see how I'm doing every day...then talk for a bit reviewing meds, blood count ...etc....all that doctor stuff.......then
without missing a beat...all 3 pull out there stethescopes and start poking and prodding and listening.......

well...after I started feeling a bit better...I had one of the nurse techs get me a spare stethescopes for a gag.....hid it under my blanket ...and yep...here comes holister and poole...parker was on another case so it was just the 2 amigos....well...the usual hits and they ask thier questions.....poke ...prod.....review meds/labs etc....then they each reach for thier stethescopes......just like me...I grab mine under the sheets....and then start listening around my chest...then move onto holisters back....pooles shoulder all the while they are trying to be serious.....well....poole started cracking up and then holister.....my sister and wife were just giggling cuz I had those things in my ears going "mmm hmmm"....."hmmmmm"...and where were you listening over here???....just making a pain out of myself.....well...it was too funny and the serious dr. poole couldn't contain it....she walked out laughing down the hall....

thought I'd share some fun since sometimes it gets really boring here.....

boy ..last nite was tough...seemed like everyone and thier mothers son wanted to either inject, push, draw some sort of bodily fluid from me almost on an hrly basis....blood platelettes were low and had to get some more pumped back into me....which they usually give me a benedrill push cuz the platelettes cause me a rash or something....

anyway....got a few cards today and really appreciate the time to send them with their message......thanks so much.....

Steve

well...today started out ok....got up..had a rough nite sleeping due to pain...after things settled down and I got up at about 8am....the oncologist came in and said nothing else to report out ..the blood work is right where it's supposed to be and the next bone marrow biopsy was scheduled for monday.....he left and as I had gotten out of the shower, get a call from the same doc and the latest labs from 5am showed the white cells were increasing in numbers....for the past few days it was at zero....well....got the biopsy today at 2pm and we'll probably know something around tues...but the reason for the move up a couple of days is that the white cell count started increasing....albiet rather small numbers but it wasn't expected and this should indicate that the leukemia is gone...and if that's the case...it would mean that the stem cells could be introduced earlier.....I sure pray that is the case...

Bald is beautiful. You need to get Marsha to complete the job with a razor. I mean, how relaxing will that be having her smear shaving cream all over your noggin, work it in well, then scrape it all off with a new blade Heaven!

Keep after it Steve. My older brother went through the same thing (I shaved my head in solidarity) several years ago. You, like he, are a survivor.

Did you ever notice that you never see a picture of Seapuppy and Peter Garret (Lead Singer of Midnight Oil, Austalia politician and political activist) together at the same time? I think we've discoverd Seapuppy's secret identity.

Peter Garret (From Midnight Oil)

well...the oncologist just stopped by with the results of the bone marrow biopsy from last week.....the news isn't good.....the first round looked promising and they thought it was going to be a good treatment but there showed some return of the leukemia on the 2nd biopsy they took last week.....
so...I have to do another round of chemo starting today....needless to say this was disheartening and a bit of a set back...if this 2nd rnd doesn't work...then I'm left with clinical trails or hospice.....

keep those prayers comin...
